Try deleting the movies directory.

See AppDB for registry entries / command-line switches to run the game
in OpenGL mode... (Normal, DirectX mode should work though...)

Someone will probably recommend that you upgrade Wine as well, but
this should not be necessary, although you would probably want to
compile a patched version (or a really old version) if you plan to do
any kind of network play under Wine.
